Hi Doug,

Take a look at the noxDB open source project. It is exactly what your a
asking for plus all the tooling around it:

I.e. look at the Watson example:

https://github.com/sitemule/noxDB/blob/master/examples/exWatson.RPGLE


The open source project can be found at github:

https://github.com/sitemule/noxDB


You can see how easy you can call a JSON based service with noxDB and let
noxDB do the heavy lifting around XML, JSON and SQL.

noxDB is designed around the JSON-in /JSON-out paradigm, and if you need to
do it the other way around - do the service - then look at the ILEastic
project, that uses noxDB as JSON,XML and SQL provider.

I want to know if there are any examples of an RPG program contacting an
API on another system [non-IBMi] where the RPG program would be the
'client' asking the other system [the 'target'] for information using a
REST interface with JSON. The only information I see looks like it is
tailored to having [i.e. our] IBM i serving as the host and have other
applications contacting ours for information, and that seems to require the
IBM WebServer wizard to set up.

Do I need to use that to have RPG be the client and contact other
companies servers for information or is there a different way when RPG is
just the client and not the target?

Thank you,

Doug
